Akiko in a Kimono by markcrilley Akiko in a Kimono by markcrilley
This is an illustration I did of my character Akiko a few years back. I now see it as a foreshadowing of the then-yet-to-be-invented Miki Falls manga series, in the way that it focuses on the season and traditional Japanese culture.

I should try a similar illustration of Miki and see how it turns out...

I forget what those trees in the back round are called. And yes this art brings out the Japanese culture a lot. Those trees are trying to tell us something.

Awww, this reminds me of the picture I drew when I finished my exam, too bad you couldn't take paper away with you from the exam room *sigh*
So pretty, I wish I get to see sakura trees one day

This is totally odd, I imagined almost the same picture at school today when I was trying to think of some art work that I could do next. My idea was like this at some time but then I thinked something little different. Odd happening, and this looks totally awesome, almost like I thinked today ^^; Beautiful.
